happened in cairo and libya, which we're going to talk more about in a moment. what is your reaction to how this seems to be escalating? >> i think the thing that strikes me the most is that at least in the libyan government, you have a real sense of people apologizing and people trying to prevent it from happening again. trying to crack down the perpetrators. in egypt, you have a government that is waffling. hasn't been living out to its responsibilities to protect people and it has been appealing to the crowds. >> we have ian as well. what can you tell us is happening on the ground right now in cairo outside the u.s. embassy? >> reporter: right now, we have protesters and police squaring off, molotov cocktails, throwing between the protesters and the police. not many protesters, but definitely enough to create a large disturbance and we're seeing the two go head to head. these are definitely more your hard core protesters that you see that are willing to go up into the front lines and really go in and attack the police, erin. >> and i know you were reporting last night, there had been fla

, tunisia, bangladesh and, of course, the attack on a u.s. consulate in libya that left four americans, including the u.s. ambassador, dead on the 11-year anniversary of 9/11. that attack first presumed to be linked somehow to a controversial film made by a private citizen in america that depicts the prophet muhammad in a negative light, but now authorities are investigating, and there are reports that this was a preplanned terrorist attack that was intended all along to coincide with september 11th. and this is just some of the disturbing video that's come into the fox newsroom from teams around the globe. these scenes are from egypt earlier today. this is where the protest movement first began, again, query what the protest is about. we were told in egypt it did have to do with the film, but it clearly has gone way beyond that in many cities. angry mobs clashing with police for a third straight day, setting fires in the streets. in libya, an investigation underway on the deadly assault on a u.s. post in benghazi. this was the scene yesterday after what is now being called a coordinat

libya. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening, i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this horrible story of the courageous american ambassador killed in libya. chris stevens sounds like a great guy. peace corps volunteer who in his more recent career acted heroically in the overthrow of gadhafi. has been overshadowed by the desperate reach by mitt romney to secure political advantage. hours before the killing romney issued a statement accusing president obama of having sympathized with those making the attacks on the u.s. consulate. he called it disgraceful. went further, obama sympathizes with attackers in egypt, the rnc chair tweeted, referring to a similar assault on the u.s. embassy in cairo. the accusation that the president sympathized with muslim militants echoes past attacks from the right. what's new in romney's statement in libya is its wildness. the president never said he sympathized with the crowds in libya and egypt protesting an anti-muslim film, apparently made in los angeles.

to be involved in the transition for building a new libya. you have to take some kind of risks like that. >> there is no question about that. but people knew that libya was a terrorist center. almost all of our facilities is secured by marine guards. it would be strange marine guards guarding bahamas but not in tripoli. >> so why did the administration go to the story. it was all about the video reaction in the muslim world -- let's face it an obscure youtube video that nobody knew about until after the riot started? >> i think the key question. i don't know why they went to that narrative. what is interesting the secretary of state hillary clinton stepped off that narrative herself. when she was at the united nations, also said that they knew that al-qaeda had been active in the arabian peninsula. it seems to me that the secretary of state is distancing herself from the white house was saying because if it comes out later in an investigation that the white house or ambassador rice was withholding information about what happened when they knew it there is going to be a problem for this a

and three of his colleagues is in muslim brotherhood, in libya and egypt have seen weakness and they have acted on it. and the administration has done nothing today to correct the impression that the weakness in our policy remains. i really think the analogy to tehran in 1979 before our embassy was taken hostage by the ayatollahs is right on the mark here. we are at a very, very dangerous point. and the president is not demonstrating appropriate american strength. >> you know, there is so much attention, ambassador on what happened in libya, with the murder of our ambassador and three other and it is attention, we are looking at the live pictures at 4:00 a.m. in cairo. there has been some protest in tukneesiasm but another thing that caught my attention, the response from afghan president hamidkarzai, he issued a statement, condeeming the movie and calling it an insult to islam, saying desecration is not part of religious expression and a battleground of the righteous sentiments of 1.5 billion muslims all over the globe. contrav that with how many americans have fought and died trying to
in egypt and what happened in libya was not some spontaneous reak to a stupid 13-minute video on youtube. richard nixon was forced out of office because he lied. because he covered some stuff up. i will be blunt and tell you this. nobody died in watergate. we have people dead because of this and there are questions to be answered. >> andrea: it's not just republicans concerned about this. just yesterday, senate democrats also started demanding answers from the administration. greg, we're 17 days out since we learned this was a terror attack. even leon panetta said this was a terror attack. but nothing from the commander-in-chief. shouldn't he have been honest the first place? >> greg: this is confusing to me. the response is let's coordinate it, with an engineering major. if he knew it was terror, they're now say it's terror, why did you go to vegas on day one? was al-qaeda playing craps at mgm grand? catching a show at the renetian? possibly carrot top? none of them were on message. the big coup here was imprinting the idea that the video was responsible in the media and the public.
in libya. each day that goes by it gets worse and worse for the administration. now to refresh your memory, here is what ambassador susan rice said on september 16. remember, u.s. intelligence officials have told fox news they knew on september 12 it was a terror attack. >> this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. what happened initially was it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo. as a consequence of the video. >> andrea: why would the administration try to sell us that story? >> so why did they deceive in it's obvious. the attack took place five days after the democrats spent a week in charlotte, out thing, spiking the football on bin laden. >> the reason we call it benghazi-gate it contains the grim prospect that the administration knew or should have known. this is the one cancer on the presidency. dare i say that. >> we have been lied to. we flat out have been lied to. everybody with two eyes and i.q. above plant life understands that what happened in egypt and what happened in libya was not some spontaneous reak to a stupid 13-minute video on youtube

to deal with. especially in libya. this was a well-armed, well-coordinated event. it had both indirect and direct fire, and it had military maneuvers that were all part of this very organized attack. that's concerning. and that means we are going to have to make sure, working with the libyans hopefully, that these folks are brought to justice very swiftly. we cannot allow this to stand for the united states. egypt -- and i caution some in egypt, even the ambassador talked about this film being the impetus for this. i'm not convinced yet. we saw with the cartoons in the past that months went by and then there were information operations put together around those cartoons to incite violence. we have a lot more questions about what exactly happened in egypt if, in fact, that there wasn't some information operation to incite violence against the united states embassy. and i think we -- before we draw any conclusions about what the spark or the trigger of that event, i think we need to know those answers so we can appropriately ask the egyptians what happened and why they didn't secure the
